After preparing and packing for a vacation...we NEED a vacation!!
Holy man. This is a lot of work!
The pink eye saga continues...last evening the 4th of 5 children fell victim. Thank you to whomever recommended the tea bags (I'm too lazy to go look right now!)...while they don't seem to be shortening the course, the kids all say they are super soothing to their irritated eyes!
On Day 4 for Hambone, his eyes are not quite as fiery red, but still swollen and goopy.
I'm now certain that we're dealing with viral pink eye...the doc said Hambone had "hemorrhagic conjunctivitis" (sounds horrible, huh?!) which is most commonly caused from a virus. Seeing as how the drops aren't really helping one bit, I think she's spot on. Call me a horrible mother, but I was actually HOPING that we were dealing with a bacterial conjunctivitis, 'cuz then the drops would've helped quickly.
Instead...we're left to run the course.
I'm busting out my inner hippie and using some oils in addition to the tea bags!
Okay, we've got a van to cram full of stuff and I'm CERTAIN I'm gonna forget something, so I'm signing off!
Prepare yourself for loads of lake laden photos!
